In 1875, Jean Daum took control of operations at a glassmaking company in Nancy, France. The glass factory was known from its inception as the Verrerie de Nancy and like its inspiration, Emile Galle, made many cameo Art Nouveau vases. Going into the 1920s, the taste for Art Nouveau waned, and the newly emerging Art Deco became the succeeding style. The Daum brothers began using very deep acid etching, and wheel engraving was used to achieve subtle surface effects. Influenced by the work of Mauric Marinot, their forms became more formal, and the glass walls quite thick.
Daum began to use acid for deep cutting. After the acid baths, the pieces were further refined by having various textures carved into the acid-cut areas by hand, using various engraving wheels. The areas un-touched by the acid remained smooth and shiny, creating a strong contrast of smoothness and texture. Daums vases of the Art Deco period, unlike their earlier glass, were monochromatic in color. They favored smoky taupe, deep grays, and rich browns, but also made very effective use of clear blues, greens, orange, pale purple, yellow, and even clear, colorless glass.
